  The Foundation:  FAQ's

What is The Foundation for the LSU Health Sciences Center?
The Foundation is LSU Health Sciences Center's premier academic fundraising and support organization. The Foundation actively seeks financial support to advance student learning, faculty quality and research goals at the LSU Health Sciences Center.

Is the Foundation the same as the Medical Alumni Association?
No. The two organizations are separate, but both work together to improve the LSU Health Sciences Center community. The Alumni Association focuses on maintaining and growing alumni relationships with the School of Medicine, while the Foundation focuses on providing academic support for all six schools and managing the endowments for those schools.

What is an endowment?
An endowment is a charitable gift that is invested and managed in a way that allows it, over time, to provide an income stream to the beneficiary while maintaining the gift’s purchasing power in perpetuity. The goal is to invest endowed funds in a diverse pool of asset classes to earn a long term rate of return that will maintain the funds’ purchasing power while providing an annual income to the beneficiary.

How do I give to the Foundation?

Can I determine where my support goes?
Yes. Donor intent is the determining factor for all gifts supporting the LSU Health Sciences Center. If you want your gift to support a particular department in one of the six schools, we will see to it that your gift supports that department. We can also help you find ways to support specific research programs, scholarships, student life programs and any other facet of the educational experience here at the LSU Health Sciences Center.
